mobbing

verb; zero derivation
To perform some action with a large group in an attempt to excite the audience. Intended Meaning: to perform some action with a large group in an attempt to excite the audience Analysis: The verb mobbing typically conveys enthusiasm on the part of the active party, and even though the group that is mobbing is certainly enthusiastic, the verb is usually associated with annoyance rather than excitement on the part of the passive party. In this context, mobbing refers to the action of trying to pass the fervor of the “mobbers” to the crowd. Also, the verb could be seen as derived from the group that is performing the action, namely the MOB.
